snpmarin :  This is mine from DK, let’s just say I went all out.

halo – check

milgrain – check

engraving – check

Also depending what metal you’re using I might go up 2mm.  I’d be afraid with it being so thin it would warp.

snpmarin :  Its beautiful so far! I’m in the process of a new ring with DK too! I love him, he did amazing work. This will be my 4th ring from him and my favorite too! Would you consider maybe a halo that wraps around the side view of the diamond? So not on top but side. I’ll try and find a pic. You could even do the halo in colored diamonds, like pink or yellow, so it is like sprinkles on the side of the frosting of a cupcake!

snpmarin :  okay.. similar to these side diamonds halo rings. But DK can make it look a lot better I’m sure.

I love it so far but I second pps suggestion to bump the width of the band up to 2mm. Anything thinner runs the risk of warping over time and the added pave just magnifies that chance. It will still be very dainty. I can’t even feel my 2mm band and everyone who looks at it always gushes over how dainty and feminine it is.

Agree that with pave, you need the shank to be a 2.0 mm or wider. 

I think if you narrow the base of the head any more, it will lose the cupcake look. Cupcakes are basically slight wider at bottom than top. Would you like the gallery to have more vertical details so it looks more like the fluted paper wrapper? You could still include some details. Ignore the knife edge shoulder here, but I think the center here looks quite a bit like a cupcake in a pretty paper. The proportions and swirls look so nice. If the swirls don’t appeal, you could have DK add a series of vertical pieces between the two prong elements. If you want the ering/wring to be flush (not everyone does), you’ll have to sort out the bottom of the head.  

 

 

 

 

 

Or maybe include the sharper bottom, but keep the vertical prongs.But, you lose space between the prongs to add details. Both these have 4-prongs, but I like that the 6-prongs keep the stone looking round.

P.s. apologies for typos. Typing with squirmy kid on my lap. Also, meant to say that cupcakes are slightly wider at top than bottom (wrote reverse).

snpmarin :  This was going to be my final ring so I wanted to go all out.  Sometimes I think it’s a bit much but then again I absolutely love how it came out so I’m okay with that

EmeleeRose :  Thank you!  He really outdid himself on my ring.  I never imagined it would look so amazing in person, and he was super patient with me when I did multiple changes.

Found this online. What a great gallery! I love that the metal is slightly visible from the top as it makes it more cupcakey to me. In contrast to my idea of widening the base, this has that very narrow one you like. I think the gallery and peeking out metal of the under-halo is what sells this as a cupcake. Just another idea that seems more in line with your inspirations.
